When we saw those wonderfully talented, very young children on Junior Masterchef make these Florentine Tartlets with Frangipane, well that was it, we had to try them ourselves.
That is what we did today, in between swims and wagon rides around the block.
They are delish!
I made a few changes...
1. It was way too humid to rub the butter in as per recipe, so I decided to use the Kitchenaid Sablee Pastry recipe instead, which is very tasty.
2. I had no honey in the cupboard to bind the florentine topping, so I used a small amount of treacle in its place and it was fine.
3. I used spelt plain flower for the pastry and it worked well.
I would make mini ones next time, as they are very large portions, very filling.
These would make lovely christmas treats after a dinner party.
